Please note our no-show policy:

Volunteer participation is crucial to the success of our organization. Typically, there are standby lists for each pick. When volunteers do not show up, not only does it prevent somebody who wants to volunteer from doing so, it ultimately diminishes the amount of fruit that is harvested for the hungry. If for any reason you are not able to attend the pick that you signed up for, please contact the pick leader or Marie at marie@foodforward.org or Carl at carl@foodforward.org.

Great News!!!  Food Forward is now officially a non-profit 501(c)(3). Your monetary or equipment donations are greatly appreciated!

We look forward to seeing you at a pick very soon!

Sincerely,

The Food Forward Team
